Does the Bauhaus still contribute to further developments in photographic pictorial languages? What role does the avant-garde photography play for contemporary artists today? At the center of Bauhaus and Photography is the reconstruction of László Moholy-Nagy’s photography-section at the legendary 1929–1930 Werkbund-exhibition Film und Foto (Film and Photo).


Jasmina Cibic

With her works, the Slovenian artist Jasmina Cibic (*1979) sheds light on social, political, and historical questions from the viewpoint of art. NADA is an impressive film trilogy that was developed in cooperation with the Kunstmuseen Krefeld, Aarhus, the European Capital of Culture 2017, and the MSU Zagreb. In it, she examines the sociopolitical interconnections of the cultural sector and scrutinizes mechanisms of power that play a role in the development of national identities. The trilogy culminates in her site-specific exhibition The Spirit of Our Needs in Haus Esters in Krefeld. The catalogue is a fully illustrated reader comprising archival material, texts, and an interview between the artist and Katia Baudin (Director of the Kunstmuseen Krefeld). It is the first German-language publication (German/English) about the artist.
